“For the people who have visited us every year since we have been doing this display, there always seem to be things within the display that interest them, jog their memories, and bring them back the next year,” said Bill Kimok, Ohio University archivist and records manager.
Homecoming Week has a long-established custom of watching football games and parades, and reuniting with old friends—but memorable walks through the past can also be found in the Libraries’ annual Homecoming display.
